Multiple Teams · Matt’s Minutes January 15th


Hope you have all had a great week! Last night was one of great success for the BGHS Athletic Department.
The girls varsity basketball team pulled out a huge win at home against a very good Whiteland team, edging the Lady Warriors 56-54. The win moves the ladies to 10-8 on the season. The sophomore brigade led the way with Cameron Cardenas dropping home 22 points, while fellow sophomores Katie Giller (16 points, 12 rebounds) and Mallory Storms (9 points, 9 rebounds) were also instrumental in the victory.  Congratulations to Coach Raker and the girls program, last night was a great win for the program!
The girls are back in action tomorrow (Saturday, Jan 16) against ICC foe Speedway at home; JV tip off is scheduled for 1 pm, while varsity is slated for a 2:30 pm start.
After bringing home the ICC swim championship last Saturday the boys swimmers decided to keep it up last night at Greenwood; The boys dominated our former mid-state foes, winning 11 out of 12 events and cruising home to a 112-71 victory over the Woodmen.
Congratulations to Coach Vuskalns and the boys swim team, they are in the middle of a fantastic season! The boys will be back in action next Tuesday against Indian Creek and Martinsville.
Also in action at Greenwood last night was the boys freshman basketball team; the boys pounded the frosh Woodmen by a score of 41-24. John Rose paced the Hornets with 13 points.  In addition, the Wrestling team went out against ICC rival Triton Central last evening and throttled the host Tigers, winning the dual meet by a score of 47-24.

Individual winners on the evening included: Ethan Smiley, Damian Traas, Bailey Moore, Adam Perra, Walter Ballinger, Nate Sanchez, Ely Shockley, Christian Hansen, and Isaiah Greene.  Congrats to Coach Matt Irwin and BGHS wrestlers; they are back in action tomorrow at Monrovia, for the ICC wrestling tournament.
Finally, a special word of congratulations to our assistant athletic director and BGHS teacher, Mark Jaynes. As you may, or may not, know Mark has worked on the race broadcast of the Indy 500 and the Indy Car series for many years. Last night Mark received confirmation that he will now be the lead broadcaster for the Indy Car Series, meaning he will be the lead broadcaster for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 this May. Obviously this is a great honor, and a well deserved opportunity for Mark!
As you can see, there are alot of wonderful things happening here at BGHS; please take the opportunity to congratulate our students, athletes, and coaches on a job well done!
Congratulations to everyone and keep up the great work!
